Carlisle police chief accepts Fairfield Twp. job

        CARLISLE — Police Chief Richard St. John wasn't looking for a new job after only eight months, but he couldn't resist the chance to come home.

        Chief St. John is ending his stint as this Warren County village's chief to become chief in Fairfield Township, where he lives. He will replace Michael Kirsch, who is retiring.

        “This is probably one of only an extremely few opportunities that would have motivated me to leave Carlisle,” Chief St. John said. “ ... The village of Carlisle has been very good to me. I've worked with some truly professional people here.”

        His last day in Carlisle is April 28, and he starts in Fairfield Township May 1. He will be paid $46,500 a year, said Fairfield Township Trustee Joe McAbee.

        A 25-year veteran of the Fairfield Police Department, Chief St. John served as that city's acting chief before coming to Carlisle.

        In Warren County, he has helped rebuild a department rocked by a string of problems that led to the resignation of Chief Gary Long.
